“The goal is to improve the quality of life for somebody who has had a severe memory deficit. If I can give them the ability to form new long term memories for half the conditions that most people live in, I’ll be happy as hell, and so will be most patients.” – Theodore Berger (Inventor of the Memory Implants)
The field of biomedical engineering has risen to a new level in the past few decades. It combines various fields of engineering to ultimately design and develop artificial body parts which can duplicate its biological counterpart. It absorbs principles from different disciplines including biotechnology, medicine, mechanical engineering, electronics, computer science, etc. and applies it on the biological machine that is our body.
